    Hi Guys,

    I've tried setting up my Gonzo theme but having issues with adding images to the slider. I have no idea where I am supposed to do this.

    I have read the documentation and still have no idea.

    Anyone able to help or point me in the right direction?

    Cheers

    Just add a featured image in your post and check the box that says "Featured post?" in the single post options area (right below the editor). I am using this Theme, I think it's a very slick theme.

    Hi Mate,

    Thanks for the reply. I have done that and it works. the only issue i have is that the image on the slider only fills up about a quarter of the box. When it is the featured image in my post the image fills up the box fully. The image size I am using is 300x200 which is probably the issue. Just not sure why it would fill the box fully in my post but only a quarter in the slider on the home page.

    cuppatea, as you mentioned it is because of the picture dimensions. I think you will need to upload larger pictures to match the sliders sizes. And now the pics on the posts will be blurred due to the current pic size right? I have the same issue and will correct this by upload larger dimension pics as I don't know of any other solution.

    I use gonzo too. You need big ass pictures to fill up the space. I'm talking atleast 800+ x 600+ px.

    Yeah seems like the picture that gets inserted into the slider reverts back to it's original size. aaarrrrrggghhh
